In Quarantine, you play the part of a taxi driver, desperate to escape from the violent prison city of Kemo. Deliver passengers to their destinations, so you can earn money to upgrade your cab, and take on undercover missions in the hope that somehow you can find a way out. An impressive array of cab-mounted weaponry will help you to survive.

...And (further to Apogee's earlier trivia item), unless I'm very much mistaken, Simon Day (who played Drake Edgewater in the intro movie and provided the shouty rock gem that is used as the intro music) is the same Simon Day who fronted legendary late-80s/early-90s Sydney pop/punk band Ratcat!
